My grandma and grandad would have liked it here, unfortunately they've been dead for 20 years and so has this hotel! The staff are friendly and nice but that's all you can say about this vast nothingness. Pool looks ok and the gym was well-equipped but the rest has had no money spent on it. The rooms are like dorms... More

I hadn't visited this place for many years. Many of the original buildings are no longer in use. It's sad to see the final death throws of what was an amazing resort in its day 80s & 90s. The pool is still great though. The breakfast was yummy. It's not to far a drive back into yeppoon for a meal.... More

The resort was a lovely stay and we were awed by how large it is. We heard its shutting soon for refurbishment, and I think that's a good idea. Everything felt a little dated and really needed an upgrade. The staff were so lovely and helpful the grounds were absolutely stunning and the pool was so inviting. But the best... More

The staff at reception were lovely and the resort had a lot to offer as far as activities and dinning go, there really appeared to be something for everyone, however the general housekeeping of our room was a bit of a let down. The floors in the bathroom were a bit grimy and my toddler found a hair clip on... More

Hadn't stayed here for a few years, lured back by AUD 99 rate. Dead quiet in middle of off season, no longer managed by Mercure. If you want to read a bit of the history of the place, google 'Iwasaki Land'. Built in the 1970s by a Japanese Developer, who bought an enormous swathe of coastline with grand development plans....

Very old and run downed not worth the money went to the billabong restaurant $30 a head to get a choice of nachos or hamburgers for dinner!! Complained to the staff but just told me to ring a number if I wanted a refund. The only thing that is good is the pool. Glad it's shutting down.

Although the resort seems run down, the restaurant is really enjoyable and authentic. Tempura was terrific. The egg custard soup, chaw an mushi is well worth ordering. Excellent staff. Lots of people dining and staying there. The resort had excellent pools and enormous grounds.

We have been coming there for years & have always loved it. But it is getting very run down & less of the activities are open every time we are there. The rooms are ok but don't expect 5star. & most of the staff are very rude. It's about time they spend some money on it of knock it down.

We're a family of 4 and stayed here for 3 nights ($149 per night including breakfast) in late June. From when I phoned to book the accommodation (spoke with Maggie - she is brilliant) to checking out of the resort, we didn't come across 1 staff member who wasn't helpful. Everyone that works there seems to truly enjoy their jobs.... More

We come here from time to time for fun and for work. This is a great place for families and conferences. Love the pool - all year around if you are from a colder latitude or most of the year for the rest of us. The archery, mini golf, grass bowls, badminton, water slide, and other activities are great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Close your eyes and imagine the sounds of the waves lapping the shore, of the wind rustling the leaves, the sun on your face, not a cloud in the sky and the smell of the ocean breeze. Now open them, look and feel. Set on 20km of secluded coral reef coastline, the resort offers something for everyone. The Resort's facilities include two international golf courses, stylish dining concepts,free activities, horse riding, wetland tours, rainforest canoe adventure tours and much much more. Go for a walk amongst the surrounding unspoilt bush and wetlands, home to some of Australia's most beautiful and rare wildlife, or stroll along our very own 20km of pristine beach frontage which looks out towards the cool clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef and tropical islands of the neighbouring Keppel Island Group. You could also choose to laze around in the sunshine with a refreshing cocktail. We have one of the largest freshwater pools in the South Pacific. Do as much or do as little, that is entirely up to you. Our aim is to provide a friendly and professional standard of service for all our guests, by providing unique facilities which blend harmoniously with the natural wonders of the unique environment which surrounds the resort. ... more   less
